(HealthDay News) -- Household cleaners often are poisonous and their containers may be attractive to young children.

The Cleveland Clinic mentions these dangerous products that may be lurking in your bathroom:

  • Toilet bowl cleaners, which often contain irritating bleach. Turn on bathroom fan when in use, and wear gloves to protect skin.
  • Mold and mildew removers, which often include anti-fungal ingredients that are harmful if inhaled or swallowed.
  • Drain cleaners, which typically contain harsh chemicals. Use with the bathroom fan while wearing safety goggles and gloves.
